Eugene Field – Section 206
Continuing a dance that started 200 million years ago, a butterfly at Eugene Field in Chicago pollinates a flower so that both can survive. This piece of land was once a marsh, then drained and filled in, until it was restored to match its former beauty and biological function. Subject: Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus), milkweed (Asclepias spp.) Location: Chicago, Illinois Project: Eugene Field – Section 206 Photographer: Samantha Belcik, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District.
